This work presents the comparison of three friction models for the analysis of a rotor hitting the housing. The analytical solution are compared with experimental measurements of the friction force. The measurements are taken form a test rig that represents a rotor fractioning the housing. All the data were analyzed using the Continuous Wavelet Transform, the phase plane and the Recurrence Plot. The three models provided different solutions, and they represents parts of the phenomenon. The models represent the friction but the dynamic response is unable to predict the behaviour observed in the field.
